Indians 2012 top 15 Prospects & Discussion

Jeff Reese and I took a look at the Indians system over at Bullpen Banter. Outside of Lindor (who probably isn't getting the attention he deserves!) the picture is not a pretty one, though I'm sure you guys are aware of that. if you're interested in hearing some of our thoughts on the org. and learning about some of the younger international kids it might be worth a look. Thanks for reading - Al Skorupa

Acta added that Nick Weglarz, another Columbus outfielder, could get a call as well if he keeps performing well. Weglarz is hitting .286 with 17 doubles, six homers, 20 RBI and an .889 OPS through 50 games.

Weglarz en fuego

Baseball America lists Daddy Wegz #1 on its "Prospect Hot Sheet" this week. When he's hot, he's hot. When he's not, he's like Trey Haley, also mentioned in this BA piece (free content).

Baseball America's Top 100 Prospects

Carlos Santana and Matt Laporta go 26 and 27 respectively, The Weglarz pops in at 58, and some respect for our boy Adam Miller in at 82. There's also an interesting link here, that breaks down their list looking at where these players signed from, if drafted where in the draft, nationality, etc.

KLaw's Top 100 Prospects

Most of this is in Insider, but here's a short synopsis of the Cleveland players who made the list. 13. Carlos Santana: "Given his tremendous control of the strike zone and above-average power, he has very little to do to turn into an average big league catcher, but there's a high probability that he develops into much more." 27. Matt LaPorta: "LaPorta is what he is (or what you thought he was, if you thought about him at all before this sentence): a slow, patient slugger, stuck at first base, whose power and on-base skills will make him a productive middle-of-the-order hitter and who is ready for the majors now." 58. Adam Miller: "At this point, he just needs to stay healthy for a full year, and if the way to do that is in one- and two-innings bursts three times a week, so be it." 61. Nick Weglarz: "Weglarz is one of the most disciplined hitters in the minors -- he's drawn three fewer walks than Lars Anderson the past two years in more than 100 fewer plate appearances -- and only his uncertain power potential keeps him out of the top quarter of this list." 66. David Huff: "Huff will sit 89-92 now and touch 94, and he still has an excellent changeup. He throws both a slider and a curve, with the slider now showing solid-average, but the curveball has a chance to become at least fringe-average although its slow rotation means it probably won't be plus."

Olympic baseball, aka the China Summer League
